On Tuesday, March 16th, 2021, a white gunman went into 3 Asian Spas in Atlanta, Georgia, massacring a number of staff and patrons, almost all of whom were Asian women. Regular listers will note that we dedicated our last episode to the alarming rise in hate crimes against Asian Americans. We had no idea that the episode would have been so timely. As we have done with regrettably increasing frequency, after a traumatic racial moment in the country, we dedicate an episode to processing together. This time, we invited back our guests, Dr. Pennylyn Dystra Pruim and Dr. Nina Kim Hanson, to talk with us about how we are all responding to these shocking events.
Let’s go now and listen to this conversation.
